Israel condemned PA efforts to have Israeli political and military officials prosecuted in the International Criminal Court in The Hague for war crimes against rioters on the Gaza border.
The Foreign Ministry said that the PA appeal to The Hague was a cynical move that is not legally valid. The PA continues to abuse the tribunal for political purposes rather than to promote political negotiations.
"It is ridiculous that the Palestinians do this while they continue to incite to terror and use children and women as human shields to cover their violent attempts to harm the security of Israeli citizens."
Jerusalem adds that the PA appeal to The Hague is not legally valid, and that the court has no jurisdiction over the Israeli-Palestinian Arab issue - since Israel is not a member state of the court and the Palestinian Authority is not a state.

And just how will The Hague have them arrested?
Eff the Hague.
I remember my father, right before taking the belt to me for another of my childhood transgressions saying, “if you want to cry, I’ll give you a reason to cry.”
Maybe Israel should follow that policy.
Looks like they didn’t shoot enough of them.
